Experience the authentic taste of green tea in the holy place of tea ceremony
Tawaraya Yoshitomi is one of the most established Japanese sweet shops originating in the mid-Edo period (1600-1868). In 2006, they opened a tiny Japanese café with only 8 seats in one of their branch shops on Ogawa Street. Take the entrance on the right of the shop to reach the modern café with terrace seats behind the shop along a graveled narrow approach. It is like a small Japanese hideout. Tawaraya’s homemade sweets are of course all authentic produced with the pride of this honored Japanese sweet shop in Kyoto. Matcha green tea and sweet set, anmitsu (jelly and fruits topped with sweet red bean paste) with three different kinds of syrups and freshly pounded rice cakes are especially popular.
